I dream of a lovely garden someday...

ahhh i just typed out an entire response and lost it when i went to press enter..
...firstly thanks for all the lovely compliments.

kanita i love that shabby chic cottage style kitchen!. i especially love the idea of using different chairs around a kitchen/dining table, each one with their own character and special story. i have seen a few examples of that done really well, i will try to dig them up for you if you like. in any case, you arent delusional, it's lovely and very sweet, and i would go for it!.

gg your couch must be cool. :p the little blue dressers are actually from a small, pretty unknown asian furniture shop in a really industrial suburb here in sydney.....to be honest i cant even remember the name but they had so many amazing treasures. they had imported the dressers from asia and i especially loved the blue colour, i thought it was so unusual. you cant really tell from the pic but they are very distressed...lots of little scratches and bumps that give them character. the hardware is really beautiful too. i have since seen similar ones in really trendy furniture shops, not blue of course, for pretty outrageous prices!. would you believe that i bought both of them for a bit less than $200 . they said they couldnt sell them.... amazing.

i also have 2 similar ones upstairs...painted white, though. one is the same size and sits near the table, and the other is lower and longer and the TV sits on top. i love them both, and i think it gives a really nice but subtle continuity from downstairs to upstairs, because otherwise the furniture is quite different {well except for the glass bedside table and coffee table upstairs}. i will try to get a pic of the white ones, they're quite lovely too

I expect because they were waiting for you I felt the same way about the vintage bookcase I bought this weekend. The dealer said tons of people had asked about it, and two asked after I bought it and the pricetag was removed ... the price wasn't bad at all, it was even on sale ... but it was meant to come home with me

I moved into my new apt last week and need some help picking out furniture! This is part of my setup right now, although the room will be painted and of course there will be stuff on the walls. I have flowers on the little prismatic table now. I painted the console table two shades of purple, there is some coral and stacked books by the vase and a large painting with an ornate frame behind it. The breakfast bar has a cellula lamp and some bar stools that are in the mail, and a new lighting fixture in the kitchen. That was taken the day after I moved in so it's pretty bare, I wanted to take a new pic but I seemed to have misplaced my camera charger. Next to the sofa there is a little desk that will be replaced by a crendenza, and on the wall opposite I have my TV hung up over the fire place and a side table with a large vase.

My next purchases are going to be an arm chair and coffee table but Im not really sure what to get. I was thinking possibly the b&b italia up5 chair but I'm not sure if it would match. I could also move my womb chair from the den to the living room if that would look better, or get something else entirely. As for the coffee table I like two from hudson furniture but again not sure which would look better if either.

This is the up5 chair I was considering except I would get it in all BLACK... It's the most comfortable chair I've ever sat in.

This is the womb chair, I'm waiting for leather samples before I figure out what color it's going to be.

This coffee table I would get in a much smaller size and maybe in a lighter wood or one that is almost black


Another option I was considering is a chunk of petrified wood with a slab of square or rectangular glass over it. These are surprisingly large in person..

I would love some feedback, even if it's just to say my choices are terrible! :p

ah i love everything.. in my room i have white walls, a black bed with white sheets, flowers, see-through curtains, a tree roller blind, polaroids, magazines and music (and a cd player).

but seriously i love everything! i love the all white country house look, the grandmother flower thing, the trashed look, the empty look, the all over the place and haven't cleaned in six months look.. the only thing i despise is lots of neons and modern things. Uncomfortable looking things and shiny kitchens with no handles.. I can't stand it.
